On September 7th, KZSC spoke with 1960s pop legends, The Zombies. It was hours before their show at The Catalyst that they visited our studios. Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone shared the story of the founding and dissolution of the Zombies and traced some of the impact that British jazz and choral music had on their songwriting and performing. Listen to hear that and a lot more!
